Our fourth annual report will be released soon. In this report, we discuss the results of our research on support for democratic values among students in their fourth year of secondary school in school year 2021-2022. Among other things, we present their values and attitudes compared to those in their first, second and third year of secondary education, as well as the differences that exist based on gender, school type and migration background. The report thus offers important insights for the state of democratic values among young people in the Netherlands.
In addition, we will provide all participating schools with a report that charts the state and development of democratic values among its fifth-year students in school year 2022-2023. These reports allow schools to not only follow the developments in their school, but also how their students score on average compared to a (fictitious) school with similar characteristics. We hope that these reports can help schools improve their citizenship education.
